Florence Opera del Duomo and Baptistery tour
Over 750 works, the greatest concentration of Florentine monumental sculpture in the world: statues and medieval and Renaissance reliefs in marble, bronze and silver of the greatest artists of the time.
Masterpieces made for the exteriors and interiors of the Baptistery of San Giovanni, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and Giotto's Bell Tower.
You will be astonished by the hall of Paradise where the original golden door by Ghiberti stands right in front of the medieval façade of the cathedral, entirely reconstructed in 1:1 scale; it is in this room that a young Michelangelo carved the David on a commission of the bishop. You will have the chance to be in front of the Pietà by Michelangelo, the sole masterpiece of sculpture made by the artist for himself: its memorial.
Your art historian guide will engage you with the stories of the golden mosaic of the baptistery and will tell you anecdotes and curiosity on many of the protagonists of the Renaissance such as Brunelleschi, Donatello, Michelangelo and Leonardo.
Your guide will leave you at the Brunelleschi terrace, just in front of the dome, a perfect pick for your memory of Florence.
